Halo: MCC – August Update is Live | Halo

Last week, we gave you a preview of what’s new in MCC’s latest update. Today this update arrives, ready to install to bring an array of exciting additions and improvements to your experience!

For a quick overview, here are some of the things coming with the August update:

  • Five new Spartan armor sets for Halo 2: Anniversary
  • Golden Moa Campaign Collectibles in Halo 3: ODST and Halo: scope
  • Added acrophobia and bandana skulls to Halo: scope
  • Customizing Main Menu Background Video
  • New Forge options in Halo: scope, Halo 4and Halo 2: Anniversary (object duplication, delete all, location name markers, “hold to bake lighting”, and more)
  • Career menu UI redesign
  • Post-game poses
  • Unified Caption Improvements
  • Refreshing Live Playlist Data on Weekly Reset
  • The name “Season” has been replaced by “Series”
  • Bug fixes


In the August Update Preview blog, we stated that the modding tools for Halo: scope were still being locked down and may come a little later to ensure they are up to the highest possible standards for public release.

This is always the case and Reach Mod tools unfortunately won’t do today’s update. But do not worry ! You won’t have to wait very long for this feature, as we plan to release it in the coming weeks.

Halo: scope mod tools are now available. Go ahead and unleash your creativity!

That said, it’s time to step into the breach one more time and dive back into the MCC! Unlock new armor, get cozy with new UI furniture, say goodbye to even more previous limits in Forge, customize the main menu with your choice of background video…

We’ll see you on the other side!
